Tip from Ellie:

Serve this beautiful dish with a simple green salad and some crusty whole grain bread for sopping up every last bit of sauce.

Preparation Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and position racks in upper and lower thirds of the oven.
  2. Slice zucchini lengthwise as thin as possible to get 20 total strips, about ⅛ inch thick each. Toss the zucchini in olive oil and arrange in a single layer on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Bake the zucchini, turning once, until tender, about 10 minutes total.
  3. Meanwhile, combine 6 Tbsp. mozzarella, egg, cottage cheese, spinach, garlic powder, black pepper and kosher salt in a medium bowl.
  4. Spread ¼ cup marinara in an 8-inch square baking dish. Place 1 Tbsp. of the cottage cheese mix near the bottom of the strip of zucchini. Roll it up and place, standing up, in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining zucchini and filling. Top the rolls with the remaining ½ cup marinara sauce and sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Italian seasoning on top.
  5. Bake the zucchini until the cheese is bubbly, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with more Italian seasoning, if desired, right before serving. Enjoy!
